Posted Tue Apr 8, 2014, 7:00am Subject: Coffee near the east 90's NYC.
Hello all, I recently started a course for medical school which involves being at metropolitan hospital once a week. I don't normally spend much time in this area, and I have very little time to get downtown. So, does anybody have any café's to recommend in this area?
I found a Sbx, but, well, you know.

Just did a coffee tour of Manhattan. There is nothing north of, say, 50th in the upper west side. The old, seven year old post says it all:
Jonathan you're so right. Have you looked uptown? I've seen estimates closer to $900/sq ft! It's insane! It really is a testament to the dedication of the great shops that do exist successfully in this city. It's no small feat to succeed here and shops like yours are helping to pave the way. Maintaining a balance between super high volume and super high quality is a really tough task and you handle it gracefully.
You may be lucky and find someone with a machine who happens to be good, but that would be quite under the radar. Your problem is exactly why no one wants to rent in the UES but the insane NY economy forces them to be there. That may be slowly changing as restaurants follow the resigned young professionals into the area. The closest may be Joe Coffee on Lexington near 75th. The closest that I can vouch for would be Blue Bottle in Rockefeller Center. Otherwise, EVERYTHING is in lower midtown and the villages and proximity. Edit: Sorry, andys, didnt see your post.
You know, the 'third-wave' artisanal roaster culture that dominates this site is just our culture. Since you are traversing El Barrio, you might just want to immerse yourself in the new york hispanic coffee culture and see what is good. If you visited a foreign country, you would have to drink their coffee, kopi in Singappore, for instance. And, to some extent, each enclave neighborhood in NYC is like a small country. Coffee on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx (Italian) is its own culture while coffee in West New York (Cuban) is its own culture, and so on... B
